Ellen is now on her way back to the States for knee surgery. She is very active here on the island. She walks to houses of our new believers and contacts we are reaching for ministry. If the distance is a little longer she travels by bicycle down the sandy roads of the island. This means she walks quite a bit. Over the past few months it has been difficult to keep these ministry activities up. The doctors here have sent her to physical therapy but it has not relieved the pain. Surgery is now the only option. The good new is that it is a common surgery with a eight weeks of physical therapy. So we anticipated Ellen will be in the Dayton area for three months. If you would like to reach her you can e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her cell phone (937)540-5497. If you can drop her an encouraging note it will help lift her spirits. Please keep her in your prayer.
